Films will be screened on the second Monday of every month at 6 p.m. in Room A-5, located on library's lower level.  Just call (202) 727-0321 to see what's playing this month!

Even Godzilla loves Fantasy Flicks!
It's just what it says on the tin: movies with some element of realism, some parsimonious narrative shred of the numinous, the impossible, the beguilingly made-up. Planets uninhabited and otherwise, fairies, space marines, time travel, wayward otherworldly machines, and the reality-bending light-out-of-darkness of every universe.  And, perhaps, a little adventure and romance, if our voyage permits.

Films will be screened on the third Monday of every month at 6 p.m. in Room A-5, located on library's lower level. (Want more? Novum, our Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Club, meets on third Wednesday of every month in the Popular Library at 7 p.m.)  

So strap in, check your oxygen, and remember that variety is the spice of our selections.  Just call (202) 727-0321 to see what's playing this month!

6:30 p.m.

Come to the library as each month we celebrate the work of one of America's most influential directors through the decades.
